Cincinnati Functional Fitness has been crucial not only in my development as an athlete, but as a person as well. Since I started training at CFF seven years ago, I have continued to get faster in swimming and have felt stronger in the water. And throughout the years, I have gained an exceptional amount of knowledge about my body and how to take care of it. But what makes CFF special is the atmosphere. Each trainer truly cares about me as a person, and I would call every single one of them my family, especially my trainer Scott Goodpaster. Scott has the constant desire to learn and get better in everything he does, and he goes above and beyond to study swimming and evolve my workouts as I evolve as an athlete. He is a one of a kind motivator and will go out of his way to support all of his clients. I will really miss training with Scott, but am lucky to have had him as a coach and mentor! I am so thankful for Cincinnati Functional Fitness & know I will carry the knowledge, lessons, and memories I have made there as I go through life!

Working with Scott Goodpaster at CFF was a great help in building my confidence, strength, endurance, power, and most importantly overall character. Scott's encouragement and expectations were very motivating and pushed me toward the goals I wanted to achieve. He was always clear on his expectations and always reinforced the mindset of a champion. He, along with his staff at CFF are committed to developing the body and the mind.  Scott developed exercises that were specific to my sport and overall development.  He was constantly researching and developing a plan that would allow me to gain strength and power without losing my flexibility. Scott's workouts were targeted, intense and required 'laser focused' attention.  Scott has helped me to always be  ' WORLD CLASS' not only in my training, but day to day living! During my training under Scott, I was able to become a  2-time High school team championship, 4-time individual champion in the 100,200,500 yard freestyles, and also a 4-time relay champion. I also qualified to represent The United States if America at the 2015 Junior World Championship team in Singapore. There I competed in the 4x200m relay that won gold and set the Junior World Record. I have continued my sports career at Arizona State University and their Division 1 collegiate swimming program where I am currently a Sophomore. Through discussion and suggestions from Scott, I also decided to follow my passion by studying in the field of Exercise and Wellness at ASU. If you want to send your life and wellness in ANY CAPACITY on the right track Scott Goodpaster is a man you want in your life!
